Conference Invitation

Dear Colleagues,


It is our pleasure to invite you to join us for the second symposium focused on the biology of the tribbles pseudokinase family to be held in Beijing, China from May 7th-9th, 2018.


This meeting follows on from our first gathering in Budapest, April 2015. This meeting has proved a real success by bringing together most research groups from all around the Globe with interest in Tribbles and provided a fertile ground for scientific exchanges as well as fostering a number of new collaborations.


Building on this positive tradition, we have assembled an outstanding Scientific Program Committee to develop the highest quality scientific programme.


In the spirit of pursuing collaborative research in the field of Tribbles proteins, we encourage you to bring and present new, exciting (and unpublished) data for an open scientific discussion and to use this opportunity to also share experiences with tools and reagents that may be useful to others.


The meeting will comprise of three main scientific sessions, focusing on 1) Immunity and Metabolism, 2) Cancer as well as 3) Basic Biology and Development.


You are personally invited to connect with us on this exciting global symposium.


We look forward to welcoming you to Beijing!
